Literature Electronic Reference

Have you  ever needed to look up an author or literary concept when working on a project, but you did not want to walk over to the library? The Georgia State University Library has added three new electronic encyclopedias to their collection: The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Literature, The Oxford Encyclopedia of British Literature, and the Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literature (links are to the library catalog.) Use these reference works to look up an author or topic. Each entry also has a bibliography, so you can find additional sources for  papers or projects. Off campus access is available with your campus id and password.  Click on the electronic link in the Online Access line to go to the encyclopedia. So why use these encyclopedias rather than wikipedia? Articles are written by scholars and experts in the field, so the information is more reliable than a random encyclopedia article found on the web. Make your research a little easier! Use these library electronic resources.
